We all want to save money and with 2021 Prime Day we can do just that. There are so many discounts on things we use and need as gardeners that the only problem will be choosing what to buy. I'm going to focus on products that help me have a more eco-friendly garden.
Gardeners watch the weather
Weather is an important part of how we garden. Temperature, rainfall, winds and other physical things affect how our gardens grow. We need to know what is going to happen, to plan for a better harvest, or for our most attractive flowers. Did you know that there are personal weather stations that can tell you those things and more. Some of these are so smart that they send the information right to your cell phone via Blue tooth. They’re solar powered, so are eco-friendly. Barometric pressure falling or rising tells us when weather is going to change and we all need to know if lightning strikes are nearby. A personal weather station will give you peace of mind.
Smart watering systems save time, money and resources
Droughts and floods affect gardens everywhere and gardeners often feel greedy or ashamed about turning on the water hose. Watering, to provide extra moisture to keep your gardens alive is definitely concerning these days. However, every now and then, there's no other way. To manage your garden's water needs, sometimes you have to go high-tech. Smart sprinkler systems take the guesswork out of this dilemma. You can manage your water needs responsibly with minimum extra moisture. Turn it on and off with your phone or through Alexa.
Water hose frustrations plague us all
I have raised beds for my vegetables this year and they require extra moisture than what falls from the sky. My heirloom tomatoes are looking great and I'm anxiously awaiting my first ripe one. However, it is the middle of June and we already have had triple digit heat indexes. That means dragging a garden hose around to each one. I've had a whole basket full of those expandable garden hoses as seen on TV. They are lightweight and easy to use. The problem is, they rarely last more than a few months. They just aren't strong enough to stand up to the use a serious gardener puts them through. It is certainly time that a tougher version of this great product is available. There are a couple of these tough hoses on sale this Prime Day, so I'm definitely going to take advantage of the discounts.
Our gardens should go green in the 21st Century
We have a responsibility to garden as eco-friendly as we possibly can. Conserving water is probably one of the most important things we can do. The days of mindlessly letting the water run should be left back in the 20th Century. We have some excellent high-tech tools that will give us the power to have a greener garden and that just isn't the color of the leaves.
